Dachser switches completely to green electricity


The logistics service provider will obtain 100 percent of its electricity worldwide from renewable sources; it will quadruple the amount of green electricity it generates itself using photovoltaic systems.

KEMPTEN, GERMANY – Media OutReach – 29 October 2021 – As of January 1, 2022, Dachser will be purchasing only electricity generated from renewable resources. This means that the logistics service provider, which operates 387 of its own locations in 42 countries, is increasing its proportion of green power from around 60 percent to 100 percent. In Germany and the Netherlands, the family-owned company had already switched to green power beforehand. In addition, Dachser will significantly step up its in-house generation of renewable energy and, as a first step, is installing and expanding photovoltaic systems on the roofs of its European logistics facilities and office buildings. By 2025, its current capacity will more than quadruple, to over 20,000 kWp of installed capacity.
